Isn't it time to indulge yourself a little?
Time to start ticking off that bucket list, seeing a bit of the world and putting a little wow into your life?
If you’re like us, you’ve earned the right to spoil yourself a little. You’re over 50 (or sneaking up on it). You’ve worked hard all your life, have a small nest egg stashed away for that rainy day. Its time. The kids have left home and are doing their own thing, but most importantly, you have more free time than ever before.
Who are we?
We’re Trevor and Ann Owen, a couple of Australians who are based in Darwin in the Northern Territory, Australia. We love our creature comforts so our adventures often feature the luxurious side of travel, and almost always include unusual and ‘off the beaten track’ locations.
You will find us enjoying luxury escapes in the Australian outback, romantic winter interludes at Niagara Falls, cruising the Caribbean islands or sipping cocktails overlooking the skyline of Singapore as the sun goes down.
Our travels become narratives, essays and photographic stories for the Aussie Mob online magazine and blog sharing exceptional travel experiences. As storytellers we are ‘on the money’ when it comes to cherry-picking some of the best adventures in Australia and around the world, to inspire your adventures.
We actually get it
We understand how you want to travel and the travel experiences you are looking for. Like you, we're proud to be baby boomers - and we really do understand your needs.
This means … no budget stays and no back-packing stories!
We know there are things you need to know before you make your decision to go. For example; How far is it to walk to the city centre? What local tours or shore excursions are good value? Which nearby restaurants should you try? Are there laundry services available? Do they offer spa treatments at the hotel? ... and so much more.
Like a breath of fresh air
We know that you’ve probably already seen a bit of the world so we offer a fresh approach with unique and new experiences, and will always try to include a luxury option for you to consider.
Mid-life travellers have re-defined luxury travel. While they continue to enjoy being pampered in luxurious settings, they also seek authentic experiences in unspoiled locations. These travellers are often inspired by ‘off the beaten track’ locations and unique experiences that were once beyond their reach.
We will inspire you to look beyond the traditional tour brochure holidays, to consider new destinations and new experiences you may not have thought of before.
We will share stories flavoured with adventure, touching on culture, history, nature and wildlife wherever we can. Our travel experiences will inspire unforgettable train journeys, exotic sailing adventures, relaxing cruises and useful travel and photography tips to make your travels even more memorable.
Intrigued? Get comfy. Settle in and enjoy our website.
All our travel posts and photographs are from our own personal experiences. We never showcase a destination unless we have been there personally.
